Shady Point Power Plant

The Shady Point power plant is located 7 miles from Bokoshe in Panama, Oklahoma. It is a 350 mega-watt plant consisting of two 175 MW engines that went into service On February 17, 2009. The plant claims to use "Clean Coal" technology although they are listed as one of Oklahoma's dirtiest polluters by
 Recently AES Shady Point applied for permits to build an additional 650 MW and were met with great opposition from local citizens. AES later announced that it had withdrawn its air permit application for the new plant. Company spokesman Lundy Kiger explained the decision to cancel the project as "part of our broader strategy to re-evaluate our growth plans".
